High School Students Told
How to Succeed in Business
"How to Succeed In Business" was
the subject when Westfield Public
Schools' Human Resources Director
David M. Tuller visited Mrs. Karen
Miller's classes at Westfield High
Mr. Tuller stressed the importance
of creating a good impression right
from the start. A clear, concise telephone call or letter in response to an
advertisement, a clean and neat application with no mistakes was recommended by Mr. Tuller.
He also suggested copying the
original and using it as a rough draft
and dressing for the interview neatly
and keeping with the type of business. Mr. Tuller told the students that
75 per cent of those workers fired
from a job lose it because of a lack of
interpersonal skills, not an inability
to do the job itself.
He pointed out the importance of
knowing how to deal with people in a
polite and direct way, such as shaking
hands, eye contact, being prompt for
an appointment and smiling.
"All of these things combine to
give the prospective employee the

best shot at getting thejob," Mr. Tuller
While it is not unusual to be nervous during a interview, it is important to present a "conscientious and
hard- working attitude," heexplained.
Mr. Tuller also explained the importance of asking appropriate questions when the time comes. Questions such as those inquiring about
the company background; the salary,
if it hasn't been advertised or mentioned; promotion opportunities, and
benefits which can add $4,000 to
$5,000 a year to the salary.
He also stressed the importance of
contacting references before using
them so that they will be aware of the
possibility of prospective employers
contacting them.
Ending the interview with a thank
you and a handshake was recommended and a follow-up note to the
person who did the interviewing was
suggested by Mr. Tuller.
Mr. Tuller's visit was arranged by
the Sharing Talents and Skills Office
of the Westfield Public Schools at
Mrs. Miller's request.

"People ask us why we mail invitations when tickets are available all
over town," said Mrs. Arlene Peterson
of Westfield, Co-Chairwoman of this
year's event.
"We send them to people who have
been involved with the agency before. It's a way to let concertgoers

to make ticket ordering easier.

fans who can't wait to see him perform again. People come from all
over New Jersey to hear our concert.
The invitation is an opportunity for
people who can be extra generous to
buy patron tickets. Patrons who buy
$40 tickets will have their names
listed in Jhe program and get reserved
seating in tne front for the concert,'
said Mrs. Peterson.
